Clear-Com hosted a training session for students of Audio Engineering Technology at Belmont University
Clear-Com® held a customized live performance training session last month for the Audio Engineering Technology students at the Mike Curb College of Entertainment & Music Business, Belmont University in Nashville, TN.
Benjamin Poff, Instructor for the Audio Engineering Technology (AET) degree program, originally contacted Clear-Com to request student training on intercom systems for live performance applications. “The AET program includes the operation, installation, manufacturing, and design of audio systems and equipment used in music, film and live event production, so we need to equip our students with the knowledge and experience of the equipment they will encounter after graduation,” said Poff. “This is why I reached out to Clear-Com.”
Poff approached Clear-Com for training that would help students to learn more about modern day intercom systems, should they choose a career in live performance. For this reason, Clear-Com’s FreeSpeak II® Digital Wireless Intercom, LQ® Series Interfaces and HelixNet® Digital Network Partyline Systems were the focus of the trainings. After talking with Poff, Rom Rosenblum, Applications Engineer at Clear-Com and an audio veteran, devised a seminar-style session on the general history and concept of intercom, followed by deep-dive, hands-on sessions on beltpacks, base stations, panels and more.
Mike Rucker, Sales Director, Americas, Clear-Com, said, “Clear-Com is fully committed to investing in the future, not only with our products and technology but also in the future of the industry itself. In addition to our outstanding regular training programs, we are keen to work with higher education establishments to give students access to in-depth product training as well as sharing the invaluable industry expertise of our experienced staff.”
